11 Years ago...i sac a rook on c3!

For your information, this post is made on 26 May 2008. I scheduled it to post it today because i'm having a holiday from 4th - 8th June 2008. I should be at my in law house at Johor Bharu and will try my best to pretend that i will forget about chess for few days.

About 11 years ago, i played in the MERDEKA team tournament with my team - Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) .

In the 5th round, we meet University of Malaya (UM) A. I play onn board 4 and beat Raymond Chea with a nice combination on move 13.

Warning : this game is not a GM quality game :)

Raymond Cheah (UM A) - Hairulov (UPM) [B76]
MERDEKA 1997 Round 5, September,1997

1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 g6 the dreaded Dragon variation ! 6.f3 Bg7 7.Be3 Nc6 8.Qd2 0–0 9.g4 9. Bc4 the sharp Yugoslav is more commonly played 9...Be6 10.0–0–0 Nxd4 11.Bxd4 Qa5 12.Kb1 Rfc8 13.Bxf6? the desicive mistake. 13.a3; or 13.h4 is recommended by theory
13...Rxc3! black hope for 13...Bxf6 although black is still ok after 14.Nd5 Qxd2 15.Nxf6+ Kg7 16.Ne8+ Rxe8 17.Rxd2 14.Qxc3 other move lead to mate 14.Bxc3 Qxa2+ 15.Kc1 Qa1#; 14.bxc3 Qxa2+ 15.Kc1 Qa1#; 14.Bxg7 Qxa2+ 15.Kc1 Qa1# 14...Qxa2+ 15.Kc1 Bxf6 16.Qa3 Bg5+ 17.Rd2 Qxa3 18.bxa3 Bxd2+ 19.Kxd2 and white resign on move 46 0–1
